I adore this movie, but it makes me see strange things.
1. Sarastro's feelings for Pamina. He doesn't say a word, but his eyes say all. And it seems more than Hans Sachs' feeling for Eva.
2. The Queen and Sarastro - once married and later became enemies? But this would make Sarastro Pamina's father, who also made the flute.
3. The Dante-ish vision when Tamino and Pamina cross fire and water. Who are they? Sarastro's fallen enemies? Demons? It makes a foreboding that not things will end well.
4. Monostatos killing himself? Why? And Sarastro looks so strange when he sees this. Mystery.
